Future Indians pitcher Sonny Siebert is born in St. Marys, Missouri.

Siebert would go on to spend parts of six seasons in a Cleveland uniform and 12 years in total in the Majors. He debuted in 1964 and would have back-to-back 16-8 seasons in his second and third seasons in the Bigs. The latter of the two would earn him his first of two All-Star appearances.

After Cleveland, Siebert would spend parts of five seasons with the Boston Red Sox, nearly one full season in Texas with the Rangers, one season with the St. Louis Cardinals, and a split season in his final year in 1975 with the San Diego Padres and Oakland Athletics.
